Colorado Springs Seven Falls Reopens!

Seven Falls consists of beautiful cascading waterfalls (yes seven of them) located in Colorado Springs' Cheyenne Canyon, and considered to be one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city. Due to a major flood in 2013 that caused severe damage to the area,  the trails and attraction all together had to be closed down until further notice. In April 2014 the Broadmoor announced it's purchase of Seven Falls which had previously been privately owned and operated since the late 1800's.  After extensive restoration and renovating, the resort reopened the gates to this highly popular venue last week on August 13th.

So what's new at Seven Falls?  A fine dining restaurant, zip line tour and shops for those not interested in hiking or wanting a memento from their trip. The new restaurant, called 1858 sits next to falls, with patio seating allowing guests to enjoy the falls beauty & sound while eating. Visit their website for the full menu and back story behind the name.

Moving on to the zip line tour, The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure, it offers two courses that are made up of five to eight lines. Both involve hiking (minimal) but one does include several rope bridges along the way. Tickets can be purchased online for individual courses or both adding up to a four hour trip.

Just going to Seven Falls can be an event in and of itself.  The trails and views  as you walk up to the falls has been named "the grandest mile" in Colorado for it's views.  Count your steps starting at the the base of the falls ~ there really are  224 steps bottom to top.  For experienced (or crazy hikers) once you arrive at the top of the falls there are more trails to explore for a day of fun.

Be sure to visit their website for hours of operation, admission, and more information at
